How to be a Ghost

(See Comic) "People are like ghosts, except on a seemingly different level. They think their bodies are alive, but they're not. They just see what they want to see (Gary Renard Disappearance of the universe 160)." You already know how to be a ghost. You are one right now and you've been one for a long time. Ghosts and people are two sides of the same illusory coin. People (like ghosts) simply see what they want to see. And that limitation, which is self-imposed on sight (albeit on an unconscious level), is what keeps people asleep and dreaming an impossible world of duality and death (separation). The journey from human to ghost and then to human again is part of the cycle of psychic sleep. Someday, this body you are projecting right now to limit your sight will expire and you will, for a time, enter a different part of the sleep cycle: you'll become a ghost. Becoming a ghost will be an attempt to hold on a little while longer to the particular manifestation of self that is linked to your present body. But you'll soon become annoyed enough over being ignored and disregarded by the physical world that you'll want to give up your old lingering bodily sense of self and move on to projecting growth into a new body. The new body you reincarnate into will be a predetermined destination that interlocks with relationships with other people (fragmented minds) that you've lived alongside before, but this time it will be in a different arrangement of bodies (and the roles of victims and victimizers will likely be subverted). The only way to escape the cycle will be to heal your mind of the unconscious beliefs that keep you wanting to limit your sight and trapped in a dualistic dreamland. The only point then to the dream filled cycle of sleep is to use all the situations and relationships you are given to practice true forgiveness. True forgiveness is a rejection of separation whereby you recognize the unreality of separation and instead recognize the reality of oneness. Hence forgiveness is the tool for awakening and thus expanding sight. Dead people " think they're alive. They just see what they want to see (The Sixth Sense)." Dead people " think they're alive.

For multiple reasons, it has been difficult for me to be interested in much lately besides economics.

(See Comic) The dearth (lack) of credit which marks the crisis is caused not by contraction but by the abstention from further credit expansion. “There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit (debt) expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit (debt) expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.” And this isn’t just debt Americans owe to each other; a quarter of it is owed to foreigners. Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) One of the few truly great economists of history. Total Debt (public and private) versus Income growth in the United States 1960 – 2008 Deleveraging: The reduction of financial instruments or credit (debt) that was used to increase the potential return of an investment. It is the opposite of leverage. Deleveraging is an attempt to lower risk. When a firm deleverages its balance sheet, that’s a sign of slowing growth. When credit stops expanding sufficiently, it is time to deleverage.
